I noticed this even before I was using beta versions.  I use dual monitors and Logos 4 spills onto the other monitor slightly.  Anyone else having this issue?

So far as I know, it doesn't effect usability or readability.

I haven't noticed that, but will look for it Sunday  - I use a projector as a second monitor (extended mode) when teaching.

However I have noticed that the drawing mode doesn't work on a floating window displayed on the second monitor with the main Logos window on my laptop monitor.  When I press F8 I loose the ability to scroll the floating window with my wheel or even the slide bar but it doesn't draw (using right and left mouse buttons).  I have to press ESC to regain navigation control of the floating window.

Robert,

I use dual monitors (laptop screen + external LCD) and have not noticed any spill-over issue.  Is your L4 maximized on its monitor?

I don't know if this helps.  The arrows show the spill over onto my second screen.

Once I maximize on the other screen, it is fine (no 'spill')

Keep in mind, Logos is maximized on my screen 1.

I use dual monitors in a desktop system without any spillover. I don't know it it matters or not, but I am running Logos on a Mac under Parallels with XP.

I don't have this problem. Using laptop screen and an external monitor.

No problem here either.  This could be a graphics card driver issue.

I recall having this issue a while back, but have not noticed it lately.  It wasn't that severe; just the edge of the window could be seen on the other monitor, even when maximized, if I remember correctly.  Seems okay now...

Check your alignment in Windows.  Bleed from one screen to another is a windows/driver issue.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

It's not always a driver issue.  The problem only happens with Logos.  All drivers are fine and windows aligned properly.

I'm not using the Beta, but I do use a lot of monitors in the "normal" version, and pretty much haven't seen this issue...although with one calendar reading list, it didn't enforce a right margin, making it nigh impossible to work with that reading list until I floated the panel...but that reading list has _lots_ of issues (trying to read Christian History Magazine across 112 sessions).

That said, Logos wrote V4 in WPF, and in a different thread (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/9393.aspx) I was warned that some video drivers (like my USB ones) don't play well with WPF.  Perhaps that kind of problem is what you are experiencing (I've not had this problem yet).

Logos, using Windows Presentation Foundation, is probably driving the graphics card and drivers uniquely from your other apps - DX9, vector based, etc. etc..  How many other WPF apps do you have? For most people the answer is none. 

That said, have you checked the adjustment of your monitors like this? 

Dual monitors can be flakey in both Windows XP and Vista. This is an easy fix, though.
1. Open the Display Settings dialog:

  • In Windows Vista, click Start, and then click Control Panel. Under Appearance and Personalization, click Adjust screen resolution.
  • In Windows XP, right-click the Desktop, and then click Properties. Then, click the Display tab.

2. The two monitor icons are probably not aligned. Drag them so they’re lined up, just as your physical monitors are. You should also double-click the resolutions. Then, click OK.

Really, yahoo messenger is a WPF app, so is Outlook Calendar Printing Assistant (which I use). 

 

 I know how to set up monitors, align them, make sure drivers are up to date, etc.  What I don't need is unsolicited “advice” from help desk jockeys.

Robert, I believe Dominick was trying to help.  I don't think he deserved to be called names.

I've had this issue, along with the 'black bar of annoyance' issue. It happens with L4 running full screen on one screen with a dual monitor setup. It's related to the way Logos4 handles the special display issues available through WPF.

If you want to get rid of it type in the following command into the L4 command bar: Set Custom Chrome to No.

Well, if he was trying to help he could have read my post saying that my windows were aligned.

Thank you, I will try this when I get home.
